Always Available = Operational Efficiency
We get it.
Your profitability is tied to efficiently shifting trailers.
Keeping dock operations running smoothly is a sure way to maximize efficiency… and profits. Say hello to the TrailerCaddy.
Depending on inbound drivers to move trailers can result in plugged loading docks, idle dock workers, frustration and lost profits. Calling a shunting service means you are subject to their schedule, and because most require a minimum charge, can turn out to be really expensive. Even if you have your own yard driver, at one-quarter the cost of a new yard-dog, the TrailerCaddy can be a cost-effective solution to move trailers around the yard.
The TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor was purpose-built for moving 48’ and 53’ trailers. This electric yard dog can be operated by a broad range of employees, including those without a Commercial Drivers’ License.
Most importantly – it’s always available, meaning that YOU determine when a trailer gets moved. That means trailers can be moved the moment they need to be… JUST IN TIME…. Keeping dock operations efficient.
